Cables 2 - Beyond The Basics.

Saturday March 5, 2011
10:30am to 12:30pm
$10 per person


If you know how to turn a basic cable and want to venture into new cabling territory then this is just the class for you! We take it beyond the basics and learn how changing your turn up a little bit can completely change your cable! We will learn more intricate cabled patterns and how to really take them to the next level. We will do test swatches of a variety of different cables to see how each one will differ from the next. 


Materials: Please bring with you an Aran weight solid coloured yarn and appropriately sized needles and a cable needle. All materials are also available from Stix and Stones.







Toe Up Socks
Saturday March 12, 2011
10:30am to 12:30pm
$10 per person

In this class we will learn everything you need to know about knitting socks from the toe up. We will complete a sample child's sized sock that will go over all the techniques needle to fully complete a sock from the toe up. Each student will receive a pattern on toe up socks. 



Materials: Please bring with you double pointed knitting needles and an appropriate weight of yarn to accompany it. Worsted or Aran weight is best as the sock will knit quickly and you will be able to see the techniques easier.







Simple Lace
Saturday March 19, 2011
10:30am to 12:30om
$10 per person






In this class we will break down some easy lace patterns and show you how to knit lace and not be intimidated! I will discuss knitting lace from a chart and how to properly read charts and we will knit a few samples to practice and see how easy it really is once it's broken down! 


• Materials:  Patterns will be supplied to each student but please bring with you any sized needles and appropriate yarn. *Note- Lace patterns generally will call for a lace weight yarn but for this class any weight will do as you want to be able to see the techniques in your samples clearly. I recommend double knitting or worsted weight. All materials are available for purchase at Stix and Stones.







Beginner Crochet
Saturday March 26, 2011
10:30am to 12:30pm
$10 per person

Learn the basics of Crochet! We will be learning a number of different crochet stitches while working on different samples and testing to see the gauge on crocheted pieces and how it differs from a knitted piece. 



This is a very beginner class and will be perfect for those that have never crocheted before and want to learn the basic stitches. If you are a knitter already, you will learn how crochet can benefit you for some of your knitted pieces and also how you can use crochet for embellishments and edgings in a way that differs from using knitting. 


• Materials: Please bring with you a crochet hook and appropriate yarn. Materials are available for purchase at Stix and Stones and if you need help in choosing a yarn and correct crochet hook please come in before 10:30am so I can help you choose your supplies. 




Tuesday & Thursday Knit Nights
• Cost is $10 per person.
We hold two Knit Nights during the week on  Tuesday and Thursday, year round, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm! 

Part socialpart class, these evenings allow you to bring in any projects that you may need help with or bring in a pattern you'd like to start or even a new technique you would like to learn! Or just come and sit, knit and socialize with some great people and have some fun time for yourself! It's a great way to break up the work week! 

Cost is $10 per person
